Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (volume 163)


Based on the hypothesis of a one-to-one relationship between the external symptoms of epileptic fits and the abnormal cerebral functioning which causes it, the computerized study of epileptic fit video tapes brings new information on abnormal neuron activity. From the analysis of the face movements, we can characterize the seizure.
